    Hello,

    May someone please give advice on how you can blend in during a Airsoft game.

    What I am talking about:
    -> The way you as a person blend in with the terrain,bushes,etc along with your camo. So, camo is great, but HOW do you as a person, how you blend in and move and act and all the rest.

    Is there any word for this so I could search it???

    Thanks.

    I'm not gonna give you a big essay here about the ultimate ninja sniper or anything but usually it comes with practice.

    You can do some research but really you'll eventually figure things out, like that little spot you're sitting in may look good from you're perspective but remember you're looking OUT of that bush/corner/building. You need to look at it from the view of a person looking AT it. Some things just look unnatural when you game and that's usually how people spot others, hoodies in my opinion are the biggest offenders, they're rounded at the top and look so unnatural when looking at them, especially at night where it casts a very weird silhouette.

    I rarely try to blend in too much anymore due to the site i mainly play at. It's not that big so there's little point in holding up and hiding but if that's your thing and suited to the site then think about it from the other person's view is my advice. You'd be surprised how much you start noticing things after a while airsofting

    When you get to know a site you find little things and places that work well as well

    I'm no expert but the few things I've picked up over the years has helped. Firstly, the eye catches movement, so remain very still. Secondly, the mind identifies faces easily. So, try to wear something that covers your face that doesn't resemble eyes, nose, mouth etc. Thirdly, flesh tones and black stand out more than any other colour in the woods or in open terrain, cover yourself up completely and avoid black gear in your loadout, if possible. Lastly, choose your camo carefully. No camo is perfect for everywhere but you can find some fantastic camos to suit certain environments, so check out what works on other players in your area to help you decide. Hope this helps a little.

    US Woodland works great in the summer if you play in very green areas.

    Try not to move around all the time and keep as low as possible when you can. Dont wave your gun around in the air when your moving about.

    Try to hide in bushes and long grass. Trees with low thin branches work really well, they are easy hide behind but are hard for the enemy to see through if your at a decent range and they are preoccupied.

    Dont take the first shot open to you if your defending a position. Stay hidden and allow them get as close as possible to nearly guarantee your hits and if possible shoot when they are looking a different direction and get down again as soon as you can.
